The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, released

Leading commodity groups or individual commodities within this
Section were: Power generating machinery (including engines),
$82.7 million; agricultural machinery and parts and tractors
(excluding tractor parts), $49.5 million; office machinery and
computers, $40.4 million; construction, excavating, mining
machines and related machinery and parts (excluding con-
tractors' wheel type tractors but including industrial type),
$70.8 million;;automobile and other road motor vehicles and
parts (parts exclude tires, engines, and electrical parts)
$189.4 million; and aircraft and parts (parts excluding tires,
engines, and electrical parts), $121.5 million. Exports of
Schedule B section Food and Live Animals totaled $360.5 million.
Within this category, leading items were wheat (unmilled) at

principal components of Schedule B Section Manufactured Goods
Classified Chiefly by Material were textiles (excluding fibers
and clothing) at 44.2 million and iron and steel (including



*Bes the February 1966 Issue of Report FT 900-E for season-
ally adjusted figures on total exports, excluding Department of
Defense Military Assistance Program-Grant-Aid shipments.
Seasonally adjusted figures are not available on exports of
domestic merchandise or on a commodity basis.
2The data on Department of Denfense Military Assistance
Program-Grant-Aid shipments reported for December '965 would
ordinarily have been included in the January 1966 statistics.
Because of timing difficulties, the December t965 Grant-Aid
data aers included in the February 1966 statistics, and from
noa on such shipments will be included in the export statistics
on a 2-montha' delayed basis.
IlMonth-to-month changes in exports and similar series often
reflect primarily irregular movements. Curulations of data
over 3 or 4 month periods are desirable to identify underlying
trends.

EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS


COVERAGE. Export statistics include govcinmentas wells nongo'errment shipments
to foreign countries. The export stalisners, therefore, include Department of Defense
Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments (lot which separate figures are
shown in the footnotes of this repoil), Mulual Security Program economic assistance
shipments, and shipments of agricultural commodities under P.L. 480 (The Trade
Development and Assistance Act of 1954, as amended) and related laws. (The sepa-
rate information which is available on exports under P L. 480 and related laws may be,
obtained from the Economic Research Service and the Foreign Agricultural Service of k
the Department of Aignculture.) Shipments to U.S. armed forces and diplomatic missions
abroad for their own use are excluded from the export statistics. U.S. trade uith Puerro
Rico and U.S. possessions is nol included in this report, but the export trade of Puerto
Rico with foreign countries is included as a part of the U.S. expurt iuade. Merchandise
S shipped in transit through the United Slates between foreign countries, not entered as
imports, is not included in the export slalistics.

VALUATION: The valuation definition used in the report statistics is Ihe value at
the seaport, border point, or airport of exportation. It is based on the selling price (or
.cost if not sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and other charges to the poll
of exportation. Transportation and olher costs beyond the United Stales poll of expor-
tation are excluded. None of the values have been adjusted for changes in price level.


RELIABILITY The slarisics presented in this report are based partly on sample
data and therefore are subject to sampling variation thal may cause them to differ
someu.hat Irom the results w.ich uould hate been obltined from processing all export
documents For the figures shown in ihjs report the sampling arinability can be ignored
since the probable .ariability due to sampling is either less than 550,000 (ihe largest
variation from rounding of figures) or leIs rhan a trivial percentage of the individual
tloals shown. In addirton to the effects of sampling varlarion, the data in this report
are subject to errors from such sources as the carry over of data from month to month,
cnors In reporting or proces-ing, the errtmanmon of shipments valued under 5100 (esti-
mated data foi such shipments are included in the over-all expoil total and in the totals
fo "Comrrodities and transactions nor classified according to kind" and "Low-value"
h::prcnrs. but excluded lrom other raoal.), and the omission of low-value parcel post
shipments Although the effect of such errors on the rounded totals in this report is
probjblv sm-ll the poLjbility of iniccuiacy should be talen i nto account, paicul.rily
in using ligures of relatively srr all magnitude.

Further information regarding coverage, valualton, compilation procedures and preci-
sion of export data is contained in the foreword of Reports FT 410 and FT 420. For
